In May 2013 a group of interested parties from Reading’s arts and business communities met to discuss the need for performance and exhibition space in the centre of Reading.
From this initial meeting an Executive was formed to find a suitable location for a new Theatre and Arts venue in Reading, establish the capacity, use and viability of a new venue and to secure funding to enable the project to develop.
